Thanks everyone, all the praise defiantly makes all the hard work seem worth while.

Yeah I plan to fab up some form of heatshield. The exhaust was literally just finished Tuesday night. I didn't have much problem when I had the Racing Mazda downpipe on. Of course I never did an event with it boosted yet.

I'm going to try and hit the dyno here in the next week or so. I tell you the power feels on par with my Mazdaspeed6. But its hard to tell, they are two totally different cars. I'd be happy to break 200whp at this point.

Defiantly more to come so stay tuned.

Is said that for every action there's a reaction, an opposite that counters that initial input. Your thread is my nemesis. Im depressed


Nicely done

LOL I was surprised he got it to fit as well as he did. When I went to show him what I wanted I was like a 2.5" DP into a 3" will be fine. He was like I can get 3" to fit no problem. I was like DO IT!!!. I'm totally happy with the results. He did my Speed6 exhaust too.

Another local! It's good to have somebody else in the area.

How much did he charge you for the exhaust work? It's nice...

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume it's something along the lines of Super Blue.

How do you like the cage with top down driving? Still feel like a convertible, or does it feel much less open? I've been contemplating a bolt in add on to my roll-bar. More for safety in case of an accident than track use.

This isn't even a build thread. I left so many details out in this thread its not funny. I plan to make a real build thread eventually. Basically I was just trying to introduce myself and show you all I aint kidding around.

On a side note you were all right. I was out street tuning getting the new exhaust dialed in and after about of hour I smelt something burning. To my dismay I melted the brake fluid reservoir. So... while it's down some other goodies are in the works...

Oh and yeah that's Ate Super Blue. I thought I was the newb.
